1 Praise the Redeemer with heart and with lips,
Worship Him gladly today;
Lift up your hands in the house of the Lord,
Listen to what He may say.

Joyfully praise Him, your Master and Lord,
Sing of His goodness and love;
Learn of the Savior and follow His steps,
Till you behold Him above.

2 Voices were given to sing of His love,
Hands should be diligent, too;
Feet should be ready His errands to run,
Hearts should be loving and true. [Refrain]

3 Look unto Jesus, the Giver of all,
Offer your thanks in His name;
Trust and obey Him who bends from above,
Jesus, forever the same. [Refrain]
